Open and Shut: New Sushi, Fancy Clothing, and Drugs

by - March 1, 2010 at 1:53 am -

This week’s Open and Shut reminds us of the movie Wall Street: sushi, $4,000 Shearling coats, and drugs. Okay, maybe it isn’t quite that exciting, but there are certainly some new stores and a few that have closed. Check ’em out!

Kikuchi Sushi
A new sushi spot has opened on the corner of 92nd Street and Amsterdam Avenue where Yuki Sushi used to be. The menu looks pretty standard, with teriyakis, tempuras and lots of sushi rolls. But will it be better than its predecessor?

Tangled Vine
This new wine bar/Mediterranean restaurant opens at 434 Amsterdam Avenue off of 81st Street today, serving delicacies like scallops a la plancha and offering a 160-bottle wine list that’s heavy on the Rieslings. Check out the menu here and the wine list here. (both pdfs) (Grubstreet)

The luxury British clothing retailer is moving into the 3,000-square-foot space on Columbus Avenue between 67th and 68th Street next to Ugg.

Valley Drugs
A new drugstore has opened at 850 Amsterdam Avenue around 101st Street, previously the site of another drug store.

A new restaurant from the people who own Westside Market is opening at 2869 Broadway, between 111th and 112th Streets. It’s expected to have two floors with Mediterranean food and bars on both floors. (Harlem Bespoke)

Elite Unisex Hair Salon
The new salon opened on Amsterdam Avenue between 92nd and 93rd Streets.

The store on the South Side of 72nd Street between Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues has closed, and there’s a marshal’s notice taped to the door.

1 Hour Custom Framing
The framing shop on Amsterdam between 79th and 80th Street is moving to Broadway between 78th and 79th.

Have you noticed a new business on the Upper West Side, or one that’s closed? Let us know!
